Locals embrace Street Snooker in Watford

17 December, 2012

In a day and age when it is becoming more and more difficult to prise children away from their computers and televisions, a new addition to Watford’s parks has made a welcomed arrival to engage in children, young people and adults alike in a unique play and sport activity without electronics.

‘Street Snooker’, a unique soccer and handball target game enjoyed its successful local launch on Saturday 15th December 2012 on a chilly, festive day at King George V Playing Fields, with a ribbon cutting and trophy presentation from Elected Mayor Dorothy Thornhill.

Even the frosty weather followed by a torrential downpour was not enough to prevent youngsters from taking part in a fun packed day and competition where the top prize was a beautiful silver trophy and two VIP tickets to the final of Masters Snooker at Alexandra Palace.

In a great show of community spirit and promoting local business, local Italian delicatessen ‘La Bottega Italiana’ based in Market Street provided delicious hot tea and coffee along with healthy snacks. The winners trophy was provided by Oxhey based ‘Sports and Trophies’ and talented film makers ‘Fat Chief Media’ were on hand to capture the day on camera.

The star of the day was without doubt 17 year old Richie Mooney, who scored an incredible 98 points in one visit to walk away with two VIP tickets to watch the final of the Masters Snooker at Alexandra Palace in January.

A Street Snooker leader board is now up and running and players can check their scores against other players in the country by clicking here
